The top five visitor countries from Africa were Zimbabwe, Kenya, Botswana, Mozambique and Namibia. Delegations from Chile, Israel, Kenya and Turkey visited the trade fair. Their participation underlines the importance of bauma CONEXPO AFRICA as the largest industry event for this sector in the region.
